Filmed Here

A long time ago, in the year of 1909, Rijeka was a film set for the very time. Ever since, different locations in Rijeka and the Primorje and Gorski Kotar County appeared in many films, featuring the Wild West, a central European city and French Riviera. Spectacular locations in the immediate vicinity of European film centres, development of domestic audio-visual production and long tradition in hospitality make Kvarner the ideal place for shooting films!
